I just LOVE Svetlana’s work and when I saw this book on Netgalley I had to request it. A big thank you for the publisher for granting my request! is so hyped
Meet Allis a sweet girl with chaotic hair. She is a weirn. A witch with an astral (for life). Her town is full of people like her and other beings. There is even a special school for her and those like her. She goes to school during the evenings (and I loved how the building just POOF changed from normal to freaking fancy awesome and can I please please go there). We see her try to juggle with school, being a weirn, but there is something spooky going on as well.
I loved Allis family. Her grandmother was awesome, albeit a bit grumpy at times (and did she really lick the food o.o). I loved the cousins, especially Na’ya. Though girl, please watch out with those spells. 😛
Throughout the book we learn of magic (and what spells do), we see lessons at school and the school itself and I just loved those parts. Often with books with an awesome school the school gets kind of forgotten when creepy/awesome/etc. things happen. But not here. We learn of the past things that happened (kids disappearing), we see someone is stalking Allis and her friends. I was definitely curious who it was (I was making a list) and what it’s purpose is, plus it was just so creepy.
Then things get really spooky and awesome when the kids go to find one of their own and get kidnapped. We learn more of the history of the house, what happened to those missing kids, and also what that being is that helps that person. I just felt so sorry for the one with the mask, being stuck like this for so long.. 🙁 I loved what the kids did for them, that was just the sweetest and so wonderful.
I had such a big laugh about Jasper and his astral who just liked to throw all the things no matter how big or small. I do hope that Jasper is able to control his astral because dang so much chaos and damage.
The ending was amazing and just one big rollercoaster of OMG, OMG, OMG. And I am delighted there is an epilogue, I always love it when authors add those to their books because it can really complete a story and give us some closure on what happened in a book. Though in this case we didn’t just get some closure… we also got a cliffhanger. Oh yes. I cannot wait for the next book.
The art is, as expected, gorgeous and I love love love the style of it.
I would highly recommend this amazing graphic novel to all.
